The Miami Dolphins managed to make it through the draft without any real controversy but DeShaun Watson is now again back in the picture.
The talk of Deshaun Watson to Miami will just not go away and while Miami Dolphins fans are resigned to the fact that the Dolphins are not looking to move on from Tua Tagovailoa, some in the media believe that it will happen by the time the regular season rolls around.
Over the weekend, Mike Florio was on the Rich Eisen Show and Eisen brought the subject of Watson up to Florio and where he may ultimately end up. They talked about his legal case and that there may now be settlements in the case. If that does indeed happen, his problems will pretty much be over but his image will not be the same.
That being said, both Florio and Eisen believe that Watson will still draw serious interest from the Miami Dolphins and they also named Philadelphia as a potential landing spot as well.
Miami spent the draft building around Tua Tagovailoa but there is no question that Watson would bring incredible talent to Southbeach even if it is not as squeaky clean as it used to be.
Watson is the rumor that just won’t go away and while Miami is of course saying absolutely nothing on the subject, that has not stopped the media from chiming in and saying that they would 100% have interest in making that move.
It would be interesting to see what the Texans will ultimately receive in compensation should they trade him. His value as a player is still elite but how much of his value has taken a hit with his off-field issues? Reports indicate that Watson still wants out of Houston and we know that several teams addressed their quarterback situation in the draft thus limiting the options that may be available or interested in making that move.
One thing is for certain, as long as DeShaun Watson is a member of the Texans and is not on the football field with them practicing, the Miami Dolphins, in the eyes of the media will still have interest.
